A Trip to the Bird and Flower Market

In order to help our students further experience the local Yunnan handicrafts and specials, we organized a trip to the Bird and Flower Market last weekend.

The trip was led by an experienced Keats teacher Ms. Liu, so that the students had more opportunities to practice their Chinese during the trip. It only took 15 minutes to get to the market from the school. The Bird and Flower Market has a long history and has been the most bustling market in Kunming. Many Kunming locals like to wander around the booths after dinner. In this market, you will find jewelleries, home handicrafts, pets like dogs, birds and fish, and plants.

Students showed great interest in the special handicrafts from different minority groups. Wolfgang took a lot of pictures and Pali also showed great interest.

One reason that makes Yunnan such a hot destination for many travellers is because of its diversity of minority groups. Living at Keats brings our students great convenience to learn about the local culture since the school is located in the city center. It is very easy to get around to every corner of the city. They learn Chinese at Keats during the weekdays and have the opportunity to explore the local culture during the weekend.

Students liked this short ship. Some students also bought little gifts for their family and friends.

I really enjoy coming here because it is like kind of a home for me. It is a great great environment to learn Chinese and meet great people from all over the world. Every one here is extremely friendly. Kunming has a really nice climate. It is a very good mix of modern city and also a lot of historic Chinese culture. Probably got the cleanest air in China and possibly the cleanest water too. I invite you to come.

About studying here, I think the living condition is very convenient, because the dorm is very close to the classroom. Our teachers really enjoy teaching Chinese. They are also very passionate. Compared with other cities in China, Kunming has really good weather.

The visa application was really straight forward, because Keats School helps us a lot for that. Keats has a big emphasis on conversational practice, so we learn a lot of vocabulary and daily life plan which is very convenient for us to go around town and speak with Chinese people which is the whole point of coming to China.

It doesn’t matter what level of Chinese you have, or even you can start from the zero level. Your teacher will prepare the lessons according to your requirements. The advantage of living in the school is that you will have your tutoring, you will have your private accommodation with your own bathroom and all the meals provided. I highly recommend everybody to actually take the whole package because you get to meet other students.

My first semester that I studied at another school, and the pressure there was pretty high, the classroom hour was long, and the homework was pretty tedious. Since I came to Keats, I found I have a lot more opportunities to speak in the classroom. My classmates all are fluent and love speaking and participating in the class. We have great classroom dynamic.

The best part of the school is the patience the instructors had and the time to focus on the fundamentals like pronunciation. I think it is very easy to skip over those and go to vocabulary. But by learning the pronunciation, I feel like it helped me gain a better understanding of the language.
